Our poll is scheduled for Thursday afternoons. Technical difficulties kept it from being posted last night. Of course, a huge upset that would have probably changed a lot of votes happened last night.

But don't worry, today we have week 2 of your RCT Top 25 Poll, which does NOT include the Iowa upset of Michigan State or the BYU upset of Gonzaga or any other result from last night. Instead, we give you the likely-already-outdated rankings for you to destroy with the benefit of hindsight.
